If you were able to buy a 12 Pro or a regular 13 at exactly the same price, what would you pick?

My main priorities are:
  • Battery Life: Pretty much a non-negotiable. I'm definitely averaging 7-9 hours of screen time every day since I conduct a lot of my business with my phone.
  • Camera: I do really love a telephoto lens, but I will always got for better overall performance from the Main Camera. I do a lot of architecture, nature and portrait photography.
  • Graphical Performance: I'm not a gamer, but I do a lot of FaceTime, SharePlay and Picture-in-Picture video viewing. I'm often multitasking while doing these things which can get pretty heavy on the graphics.
  • Generally smooth performance: Minimum stutters and lags on a day to day basis, since my phone is also a key work device.
I'll be keeping whichever of these I buy for quite a long time, so definitely looking for a more long-term POV.

Also, I already know that the 13 will inevitably get 1-2 extra years of software updates, not particularly bothered by that.
